Some kind words about The Minneapolis Henrys
Live Review: "With The Minneapolis Henrys, what you see is what you get. Four simultaneously cadence-driven musicians whose collective talents enable the four-piece to woo an audience without pushing any inward-thinking art-rock tendencies on them. What they’ve created is a subtly brilliant live show that hardly allows its audience members time to breathe. They engage those in attendance by requesting even the most jaded of the hipster set to approach the stage, and “get jiggy with it,” rather than mug and pout in the distance. They’re about as personable a young band as you’re likely to see in the area."

"The Henrys craft nice, tight songs, create momentum and sustain it on both ballads and percussion driven rockers. Last I checked the weather online, both Minneapolis and Chicago, where the band now resides, were in the negatives. Thank god those poor souls have some hot, good ol’ fashioned Minneapolis rock to warm their freezing bones."
"Whether it's on hot and heavy fast tracks like "Magnum" or slower, more contemplative pieces like "Where My Mind's Been," the band makes indie rock that appears simple on the surface but has intricate layers underneath, melding jazz, rock, and punk. This Chicago band has been doing gigs for about two years now, forming tight musical bonds that allow fro wonderful interplay and improvisation. At the same time, they're new enough that they still sound like a college band—new, free, and willing to make mistakes to find the right sound. Plus, I love that band name."

"A band like The Minneapolis Henrys come around every so often. They know they may never be rock stars, but this isn’t why they got into the business of making groundbreaking records. They’ve managed to fuse everything they love about underground music, and spit it out with an original flare rarely seen or heard anymore... The Minneapolis Henrys are your new favorite band. You’re welcome."

"Albatross tosses out instantly likable tunes with a nice sincere quality that is hard to describe. Our guess is that these folks are motivated purely by the desire to make good music. 5/6 (excellent)"
